The heavy rain that continually falls starting January 2014 has caused
floods and massive loss to our government. This happens not only in Jakarta but also in many places all over Indonesia. We become instantly aware that heavy rains, the ensuing flooding and natural disasters don't occur only in Indonesia but in other countries in the world as well. We instantly know what happens in other countries largely due to the Indonesian online portal 'detik.com'. Due to the advent of this modern technology, what happens in that 'second' can be spread instantly within that very second. News has become lightning fast that it's now readily accessible at the click of the mouse or the swipe of a touch screen. In addition, we can now communicate globally, even with virtual friends in the e-world.
However, this advancement of the modern world comes with some negative effects, such as:
- the much higher population and the resulting crowding
- the presence of many more sources of temptation
- the availability of instant and global communication
- the negative role of the media
- the highly corrosive influence of 'big' money
What causes all of these? Are there any possible solutions to the current problems? What are our roles as parents and educators? To address these concerns, Bukit Sion School, in cooperation with the Institute of Sathya Sai Education Indonesia, will thus conduct a parenting seminar entitled 'The Importance of Moral Values in the Context of Modern Times'.
The details of the seminar are as follows:
Day/Date : Wednesday, 5 March 2014
Time : At 13.00 - 17.00 (2 sessions)
Venue : BLUE Campus Auditorium
Speaker : Prof. Dr. G. Venkataraman (India)
He has written around 80 journals and articles in physics which were issued in America, England, Europe and India.
